on government leaders really trying to attempt to wrestle with their budgets along with international lenders and it looks like this latest effort is going to drag on until later this month. eurozone finance ministers have shelved a decision on another bailout for greece until november. they want an austerity deal with international lenders first. finance ministers from 17 countries held a telephone witness to discuss the bailout. they said greece has yet to reach agreement on specification austerity measures with its creditors. the creditors include the european union and international mown tear fund. the austerity measures are a precondition for fresh emergency loans to avoid a potential default. the finance ministers urged the greek government to reach a consensus on labor reforms. the ministers will again discuss the greek bailouts when they meet on november 12th. greece is taking that pressure from the eu seriously. the government there has submitted a revitdsed draft budget to parliament outlining yet more spending cuts. the budget for next year will slash spending
